Management Care Plans
General Practitioner Management Plans (GPMP)

Your Doctors of the Corowa Medical Centre are involved with team healthcare management.

To help you receive the right care plan and the treatment most suited to you, an appointment with your doctor is required to work through an assessment.

General Practitioner Management Plans (GPMP)
If you have a chronic condition* a GPMP can help manage your condition and achieve your goals.

Your GPMP is written by a Chronic Care Nurse in consultation with your Doctor.

Your GPMP outlines your chronic condition/s and the goals that you, your GP and Chronic Care Nurse have agreed upon. It also includes what actions or services are required to help you achieve those goals

Your GPMP aims to ensure everyone involved in your care i.e., your Doctor, Nurse, Specialist, Allied Health etc work together to manage your condition and achieve your goals.

*A chronic condition is a medical condition that has been or is likely to be present for at least 6 months.

Team Care Arrangement - (TCA)
You may need a Team Care Arrangement in addition to your GPMP.

After preparing your GPMP your Doctor may identify that you may benefit from the input of other Health Care Providers.

A TCA involves at least two other health care professionals, as well as your Doctor.

With your consent, your Doctor will ask these health providers to form a team to work together to develop a plan based on your care requirements.

Health Assessments (HA)

Health Assessments help you to maintain good health. They do this by allowing your Doctor to look at areas of health that may not arise in your normal Doctor’s appointment.

A Health Assesment will provide your GP with an opportunity to undertake an in-depth assessment of your health.

You can have a Health Assessment if you are:

  • 45-49 years old
  • 75 years and over
  • Aboriginal or Torres Strait islander over 55 years
  • Or have cardiovascular disease, or you are at risk of developing cardiovascular disease
  • The assessment will cover medical, physical, psychological and social aspects of your health.

 

Coordinated Veteran's Care Program (DVA CVC)
If you hold a Veterans Affairs Gold Card and have a chronic illness, this program can help coordinate and manage your care.

The DVA CVC Program is coordinated by one of our nurses and involves regular, monthly contact and planning to offer better management to improve quality of life and to decrease hospital admissions.

It is a personalised care plan developed in consultation with you, your Carer, your GP and the Nurse Co-Ordinator.
